I am so behind in blogging these days. On the next few days I am going to blog on the places we visited about two months ago. Here is one entry from one of our shopping jaunts to Bellingham.
We had not warmed up to the idea to pay for a Nexus pass. It seems to be a lot of money of which we are not sure if we will use it all year round. So, instead, we would normally drive across the border at an unearthly time, before 6AM usually, just to beat the border lineups. We would have breakfast after we cross the border.
We just randomly picked a breakfast joint along Holly St and went to The Horseshoe Ranch Room Cafe. We had originally wanted to go to The Old Town Cafe which we knew was voted the best breakfast eatery in Whatcom County but they were closed.
The Ranch Room is just a simple 24-hour eatery. We noticed that we are about the one out-of-towners around. This caters a lot for the locals. We like that because we know such places will serve a really mean breakfast … breakfasts in Vancouver in comparison to the US, is so puny.
I guess there are not a lot of BC shoppers that venture to this part of Bellingham. Most BC shoppers will flock to the east of I-5 where all the big boxes are.
The coffee in the Ranch Room is not good — we did not enjoy it. I am so fussy about my coffee in the morning and so this is a bit disappointing. There are free refills though.
The Ranch Room’s German Hashbrown full serving costs $6.95. There were a lot of hash browns and I mean a LOT. It was a jumbled mess off hash browns and chunks of ham — not the prettiest of plates but really nice. There’s more than enough carbo on this to last us a full day.
We also got ourselves their Hotcakes Plus Egg. It was pretty cheap — just $4.99. There is nothing fancy about this except again it it too big for us small breakfast eaters. Suanne only managed to eat 1.
